Torn Ligaments in my leg... basketball
Broken foot... basketball
broken ribs... encounter with door handle while car slid into ditch

a couple dozen stitches in my upper lip...
encounter with a 2x4 kicked out by a table saw.

what should have been a dozen or so stitches in the back of my right hand from an encounter with plate glass mirror and over zealous dog.. dog wasn't hurt.. but I got the back of my hand filleted..

dislocated thumb... basketball..

index finger on right hand..seven stitches from broken bottle..

nose broken.. misunderstanding while slightly inebriated

cut along breastbone... too dumb to get stitches then.. from a large steel door falling on me...

assorted other small incedents and scars associated with either being careless with a knife or have various steel items inserted under the skin..

all in all... nothing major...

hey bello, don't forget the "ting ting ting" LOL.

oh and I rem, once a bunch of us kids were playing Cricket (eeek) in front of a friends garage in their drive and what we used for a cricket bat was an old fence paling (sp)what we didn't know was that it had a nail sticking out from it on the end. Yeah. And I was standing right there and I was around 6 or 7. So this kid swung at the tennis ball coming for him and his bat hit me right in the forehead.....ouch. I remember running home screaming with a blood soaked face and sweater. I still have the scar. I was such a tomboy...er...yup still am.  

So bells you got hit by a car?

I have only broken one bone:

pinky toe
(the whole foot part there turned black).  That was doing laundry and rushing through the living room, stubbing my toe on those lil' furniture feet that hide and jump out just when your not looking.  (You know the ones that make you fall on the ground, holding affected body part as if it had been seared off).

Ok so I'm a baby plbbt . . .

but?

I have this semi-annual obsessive-compulsive need for attempting to repair things that should be thrown away in the first place with crazy glue, thus injuring self in the process.

Did I mention I am a clutz?

ok so far:

left thumb nail and finger, left pointer:
diced by a glass shamrock with an Irish Blessing on it, no less.

Right pointer and pinky (ESSENTIAL typing fingers)
(skin grafted those babies)
(have you ever seen fat cells?  ewww)
Oh, that was thinking I actually had muscle in this body attempting to lift a microwave that could hold two turkeys from the top of my fridge (oops)  (metal bottom -->> sssssliccceohhla!)

I still cant feel those damn things.

hmm . . .

I have had interesting occurrences with hair dryers OH, once all of my hair got wound into a blower fan for a furnace. Not a pretty site and that feeling that your hair will shortly leave your scalp is kinda terrifying.  *grin*

I have had three concussions. (LalalalaLaaaaFonnntainnnneeeeeeeeeeeeeee)
not my doing, that of my dog and another trying to load up with frozen meat for a barbecue down some ole rickety back stairs,
(yes, all the way down the stairs, frozen food flying everywhere . . . another one falling INTO, yes into a boat (dont ask)

That's about it . . .

I’ve been in a few car accidents.. Got a concussion when the car rolled 3 times and landed on my head (not kidding, a rock hit the door and my head fit there perfectly, how I don’t have any idea, that is what I was told) been banged up pretty good, and had some serious bruising, physical therapy for my back and I think I broke my nose once as a kid, but never went to the doctor for that, so maybe not? Other than that, just the regular sprains and all that stuff. Oh and once my exhusband kicked me in the back of the head so hard it blurred my vision for about a half hour. Did he take me to the doctor for that? No, he didn’t. Thank God, my vision cleared back up.
But that is about it for me so far...

oh and Ron? I can relate to the hot oil...had to clean chicken fryers...not fun.

Broke both the left ulna and radius when I flew over a bike's handlebars.  Was a friend's bike, and I decided to check the brakes while travelling at a good clip.  Pity only the front ones worked.

Several broken and self-set fingers from punching fridges, trees, brick walls as a child...amazing how pain can temper a temper.

Large hole in my right wrist ligament, below the pinkie.  Still don't know how I managed that one, but it did put my entire right arm out of commission for about 16 months.  I'm chalking that one up to 'wear and tear'.

My heart is gravel now, but that doesn't count though it would be my only break.

Sprains...ankle once, both thumbs simultaneously (don't ask), and neck when wrestling opponent put a figure-4 scissors on my head..... Not bad for a guy who did that and ran the hurdles all through high school and college...good bones, I guess. Still working on that heart thing....

Raph

The broken nose came from my child when he was a bit older...not while having him. I was holding him in my lap and he sat up real fast and his head crunched my nose.  Aren't you glad you asked?

I heard a story today...my friend's friend cut off his finger. The guy was fine until my friend picked it up off the floor and said, "here's your finger"  and he fainted.

me...I was under so much stress that it aggravated my excema and it got so bad I lost all the skin on the palms of my hands - two huge open wounds for a couple weeks.  People were afraid of me.

Other than that a sprained elbow from skiing, and a fractured toe from stubbing it...

good times, good times.

I am a tough girl...no doubt about that..I have held my sons scalp together as the doctor stitched it up...but...

Once when I was about 12 yrs old I sliced my toe open, looked down at it and passed out...another time I was getting my physical to join the Navy and when they took my blood..I passed out.  

Other peoples blood don't bother me...
